I live in Ketchikan, Alaska where we get 150 inches of rain per year on average. Really. Google it. When I saw the Saturday Six Word Story prompt was "Rain," I knew I had the perfect story-telling picture in my phone. Recesses are rainy here, and the kids don't let that stop them.

I have dahlias, I will give it a try. So here you are, a lovely bunchy, bushy, trailing dahlia that draws bees and … Continue reading Darling Dahlia
